As promised I want to share some of the amazing art created in the Muse Group last weekend!
When you sprinkle the Citrasolv (cleaning fluid concentrate) on National Geographics, close the book and let it “cook” for about 10 minutes, you get wildly beautiful ink patterns and some ghostly images peeking through. The kind of stuff that sends the imagination realing!
Each one of these pieces served as the catalyst for a written piece that took us deeper into the domain of expanded poetic imagery, very heady stuff!
And ironically enough, the only large painting I’ve done that features Citrasolv collaged papers was just juried into the Collage and Assemblage show opening at Sebastopol Center for the Arts this Thursday 6-7:30pm. The painting is titled “Rose and Me”.
